My Life As… A Test Cricketer – Mitchell Johnson

Mitchell Johnson is one of the most successful Aussie fast bowlers of all time. His devastating fast left-arm deliveries could turn a test match Australia’s way in the space of a single over.

Throughout Mitch’s career though he experienced many ups and downs. The 2009 tour of England saw him ridiculed by the Barmy Army and the ruthless tabloid press. The tour was a disaster on many levels for Mitch and some questioned his career and his place in the Australian team.

But like a true champion, Mitchell Johnson dug deep. And in the 2010 return Ashes series, Mitch took more wickets than any other Aussie bowler.

In this episode we go one on one with Mitch who gives us the lowdown on some of his epic Ashes battles with the old enemy, sledging and his love-hate relationship with the Barmy Army.
